The pain then radiates into the shoulder area. This is why many people who have headaches treat themselves to seek frequent neck and shoulder massages. Relief That Works Physical therapy goes beyond massages to evaluate and treat the root cause of your pain. Muscular tightness may lead to poor joint movement and weakness. Our medical physical therapy experts are trained in specialized, hands- on treatments to quickly reduce your pain. Furthermore you can enjoy the added benefits of corrected posture and improved motion.

Physical therapy can help you to relieve the tightness and tension in your muscles, helping you live a happy, pain-free life.

I knew I had picked the right place!

Colin Rieger Billing Manager

“I am a police officer and I partially tore a tendon in my right shoulder while trying to apprehend a subject at work. I have never had to attend physical therapy before and was a little nervous about what it was going to all be about. My mother recommended me to Farmingdale PT West because she’s been here before. When I got here and was introduced to thePTStaffofJillian, Liz, and Joe I knew I had picked the right place. They were all very

attentive and helpful no matter what I needed. My workouts were shown to me and the staff always had an eye on what I was doing. Every day I arrived at the office, I would always be greeted with a smile and a big hello by the front desk staff. The thing I was most impressed about was no matter who it was, Jillian, Liz, Joe, or the front desk staff, they would always remember my name and exactly what I needed, It always made me feel very comfortable while at physical therapy and gave it a very “homey” feel. I would recommend Farmingdale Physical Therapy West to anyone and will definitely pass the word along to any of my coworkers who may get injured on the job.” - Kevin M.
